    A typical morning in a Lviv household – the family is getting ready to have breakfast. Suddenly, something terrible happens – the eldest daughter appears on the screen with a different colour correction, and is tragically mismatched with her perfectly saturated environment and other characters: she is desaturated. The desaturated heroine realizes that the film will end in 9 minutes. Will she be able to change her colouring?
